"Betting and raising with an incomplete hand is called "betting on the come."
-Henry Stephenson in his book Real Poker Night
Draft Redux: Betting on the Come
OK. I've had it.
I'm up to here with toxic town hall rants, Tea Bag activists advocating revolution, and raucous protests from both sides of the health care issue, grassroots activists and Astroturf pawns all demanding their country back. I have never seen so many outraged Right and Left wing populists galvanized in opposition to a single Administration policy. Well, it's been a few decades anyway.
And demanding their country back! Who gave it away in the first place? We all did, wittingly, piece by piece, from the time George Bush closed "My Pet Goat" until now. It's too late for histrionics. It's time to get truly hysterical.
